I used to visit San Juan Island every year with my family during the summer to enjoy all that the beautiful island has to offer. Recently, my sister and I wanted to relive the “glory days” and decided to indulge in a mini getaway. We checked into our hotel, Friday Harbor House, and then dropped our things and hit the town. We explored the little shops and then came back to the hotel for lunch on the patio overlooking the Friday Harbor Marina. It was great to sip an iced tea, enjoy the view and reminisce about our adventures on the island.
The next day we decided to ride mopeds around the island thanks to the suggestions from the Friday Harbor House staff. The mopeds we rented came with an option for a self guided tour with all of the island’s major attractions. We stopped at every attraction laid out on the self guided map tour and saw a lavender farm, a camel and even caught a glimpse of a few orca whales swimming by. This was one of the highlights of the trip and I would highly recommend it!
